SOURCE: gas tamk removal john deere 115

I had the same thing happen. I got the tank out, but it wasn't easy. Take out the bolts out that hold the rear end on. Take off the two springs that support the seat. Take out the battery and the battery tray. Take out the 6 bolts that hold the black cowling and the front of the green platform to the frame. This will allow you to lift the seat platform far enough off the rear end to allow the tank to be pulled out through the side. You also have to remove the metal bracket which holds the front of the tank and has caused the tank to leak in the first place. New tank is $56.00 not installed. I used a soldering gun and melted the plastic back together. I think it will hold quit a while. I know this is a little sketchy, but It worked for me.

SOURCE: Craftsman lawn tractor model new battery drains quickly...

it could be the stator in the engine check the voltage with the volt meter when its running if its low check connections on battery & voltage if its below 12.5 volts then its the stator but the only thing is the engine should run with-out the battery so there is something else going on there is a fuse in the electrical system if theres a short that fuse will blow & engine will stall

My Craftsman lawn tractor will run for a while and then stop then sometimes after sitting for a while will run again. What should I check? I added fuel additive to gas just incase the fuel was bad.


Drain the fuel tank. Dispose of the gasoline responsibly.
Replace the fuel line between the tank and the carburetor.
Put fresh gas in the tank. See how long it runs.

While you're at it, change the oil and remove any debris from
the cooling fins on the engine. It may be overheating.

If it still doesn't run, you probably failed to replace the fuel line.
Trust me, this is part of good maintenance for these machines.

Test for spark. Make sure the air filter is clean. Then make sure fuel is getting from the gas tank to the carb. Old rubber fuel line deteriorate and stop up small ports and parts in the carb. An inline fuel filter is a good idea on these larger engines. Sometimes, a larger B & S engine needs the OH valves adjusted to start easily and run properly. If after attempting to start, does the new plug get wet or even smell like gas? You should always use gas LESS than 30 day old. Gas goes stale like bread and milk. You can remove the fuel line from the fuel tank at the carb to drain old gas. You can also remove the carburetor bowl to check for water and sediment (which need to be cleaned out). Check these things and post back.

How to remove gas tank from craftman LT1000 lawn tractor it is located under the seat


Hello, removing this tank is easier then it may initially seem. Here are the basic steps:

tilt the seat forward
remove the springs that support the rear of the seat
remove the knob on the transmission shift lever
remove the fuel cap
loosen the bolts under the foot rests (that is all part of the fender assembly)
gently lift the fender assembly to expose the fuel tank(I have used an engine crane type lift to do this)
remove the bracket over the tank
remove the tank

reassemble in reverse order.

If this helps please vote yes, Thank You!

My 17.5 hp 22in Huskee Lawn tractor is stalling out after 5 to 10 min.


Check simple things first - as soon as engine dies, remove gas cap and attempt to restart. If successful, the vent is blocked, causing a vacuum to form in the tank. Effect will be more pronounced when tank is full.

since you didn't give any specifics, such as model number, engine make/model no., etc., we'll have to GUESS. if it does actually backfire, i mean a real kapow, either you have water in the gasoline or the flywheel key is sheared. check the gas tank, water is heavier than gas and you'll be able to see a sort of glob rolling around on the bottom of the tank. you'll need to drain the entire system, carburetor included, IF there's water. if not, the flywheel will need to be removed, not an easy job, best left to a pro. it COULD be an electrical problem, but rare.

Craftsman- gas not flowwing to engine from tank under seat.


Yes there is a filter in tank but cant be removed,dump gas out of tank and leave gas cap off place a rag over tank to catch any gas that you couldnt remove doesnt blow all over then take your air hose and blow through the gas line this will clean the filter after you do this place a can under gas line to catch gas and put a little gas in the tank to see if your problem is solved .
